If your mom is anything like mine, she’s doing a little extra worrying these days. So you’d better not forget to do something thoughtful this Mother’s Day. If you’re short on cash or a gift won’t arrive in time with the current shipping delays (definitely not because you remembered too late), make her something. You could turn a friction-call striker, make a para-cord turkey tote (try blaze orange—moms are usually sticklers for safety), or print out a bunch of her favorite family hunting and fishing photos and slip them in an album. If you’re not the crafting type, break out the back straps you’ve been saving and cook her dinner, even if you have to sit on the other side of the porch. If you’d rather buy her a gift, check out our new favorites for hunting moms.
1. Camp Chef 4-Piece Carving Set
Most good cooks are picky about the tools they use, and the knives at deer camp—or the sad paring knives in your car-camping kitchen box—usually leave something to be desired. That’s what makes this portable set from Camp Chef so great. It’s got the essentials for grilling (tongs) and slicing (two knives), plus a carving fork for when you’ve got a fancier setup.
